FPV drones have sky-rocketed in popularity in recent years and have grown a huge following in pop culture as the footage you can create with them is so unique.

However, in most cases, it's incredibly hard to just simply buy one as most FPV platforms are custom made. Well, at least until now.

The mainstream consumer and professional drone company DJI introduced a complete FPV drone solution with controllers, cameras and goggles integrated at one set price, but how does this compare to a custom kit?

Here are some pros and cons to opting for the DJI FPV over a custom-built solution:


  • Buy and fly, no further parts or building necessary
  • compact and simplified package
  • Fantastic camera
  • Online tutorials and support
  • Retailer and customer support
  • Warrantee


  • No customisable flexibility
  • Limitations on speed
  • No upgradable battery
  • Price

Conclusion: If you want to get into FPV drone flying, the DJI FPV is without a doubt the best platform available, however, if you want the option to further customise and build up your FPV systems, then a custom kit will likely be more beneficial for you.
